Product review: Muc-off Helmet and Visor Microfibre Polishing Cloth

Marc Abbott, 12 October 2012 15:33

Muc-off Helmet and Visor Microfibre Polishing Cloth, £5Time used: 18 months What’s good: This cloth gets daily use on not only my goggles but also my prescription spectacles. It’s incredibly kind to polished (or glass) surfaces, always buffs to a smear-free finish, and – even after 18 months of regular use – emerges from the washing machine in top nick ...

Book review: How your motorcycle works by Peter Henshaw

Marc Abbott, 24 September 2012 15:19

How your motorcycle works by Peter Henshaw, £9.99 What’s good: My brain absorbs pointless detail. I could tell you the numberplate of the Renault 14 we had in the early 1980s (DRW 722T, if you’re interested), but would struggle to explain adequately to my daughter how the planets revolve around the sun. If, like me, after 15 years of riding ...

Product review: Brooks Barbican shoulder bag

Marc Abbott, 14 September 2012 09:27

Brooks Barbican shoulder bag, £225Miles covered/time: 8000/18 months What’s good? I’ve worn this bag – designed for cyclists, but perfect for those of us vain enough to value style as highly as substance – on every ride for the last year and a half, whether that’s a hop to the supermarket or a 400-mile motorway journey. I’ve applied some low-cost ...

Product review: Aviator Retro Pilot T3 goggles

Marc Abbott, 08 August 2012 14:30

Aviator Retro Pilot T3 goggles, £102Miles covered/time: 20,000/three years What’s good: In the course of these goggles’ high-mileage test, they’ve provided crystal clear vision, with no misting nor glare from the lenses. Beyond this, the elasticated strap has retained much of its integrity after 20,000 miles in all weathers. The lenses pop out easily enough to be changed from dark ...

It’s a really intelligently written and photographed document of the Ken Fox Wall of Death as it travels the country. It captures the sound and scent of ...

Product review: Muc-off chain cleaner

Marc Abbott, 25 June 2012 14:36

Muc-off chain cleaner, £7Time used: One year What’s good: The first time I used this spray-on chain cleaner I wondered how I’d ever done without it. My humblest apologies for trotting out what sounds like marketing-speak, but on this occasion it’s true. Put simply, you spray this on your chain after washing the bike, and then wipe away with a ...

Marc Abbott, 23 May 2012 11:18

Product review: Muc-off Dry Shower

Marc Abbott, 30 March 2012 10:20

Muc-off Dry Shower, £7Time used: Three months What’s good: The showers are out of order at the MCN offices – have been for a month or so now, something to do with the gym next door flooding. Anyway, here’s where Dry Shower comes in handy… strip down in the loos, spray its foamy payload on to the palm and lather ...

Vulcanet Bike Wipes

Marc Abbott, 03 January 2012 13:04

UPDATED REVIEW Vulcanet Bike Wipes, £33.99 (for an 80-wipe bottle) Time used: 10 months What’s good: When I first reported on these wipes, I’d been using them for two months. Initial findings were promising. In the intervening eight months I’ve come to rely upon them, using them to keep my Ducati Monster 1100 Evo in tip-top condition throughout the year, ...
